Free Consultation With An Attorney

Can I bring a lawyer to my Social Security disability appeal?

Not every application for Social Security disability benefits is initially approved. In fact, some Fayetteville residents may have their applications denied despite completing their paperwork to the best of their abilities. When an applicant has his request for benefits denied by the Social Security Administration he may request a hearing to have the matter reconsidered.

Individuals who are granted hearings on their Social Security disability benefits appeals may utilize personal legal representatives during the process. A lawyer who includes Social Security disability law in his practice can appear with or for his client during hearings and may provide his client with legal advice regarding how to approach the appeal.

Attorneys may be utilized during other parts of the Social Security disability benefits application process as well. Lawyers can help their clients collect documentation from the Social Security Administration about the applicants' cases and they can assist their clients in the process of obtaining the evidence the applicants may need to prove their eligibility for Social Security disability benefits. Additionally attorneys may work with their clients to ensure that they and their witnesses are prepared to speak at any hearings that may be necessary during the application or appeals process, and attorneys can provide legal support to their clients when information about the clients' cases becomes available from the Social Security Administration.

There are a number of other ways that attorneys can provide support to their clients who apply for disability benefits. Individuals who wish to learn more about the services these legal representatives provide can speak directly with practitioners of their own choosing. As every case is different, readers may find that the services their lawyers suggest differ somewhat from the services discussed in this post, and as such readers are encouraged to utilize the information contained herein as general guidance rather than legal advice.
